  • Cheerleading competition is quite an affair

    The last time I attended a cheerleader competition the boys’ state tournament was still being played in Louisville.  I think it was the year that Jeff Lamp and Lee Raker played for Ballard, which would have been 1977. They both went on to play for the University of Virginia, but that is another story. 

    Anyway, it has been a long time and that was the only competition that I have been to ever.     

    So, the competition Sunday on the Hilltop was something new for me and I found it quite interesting.

  • Grapplers shut down Dunbar on Senior Night

    In what Coach Riegel thought may have been the best match of the year, the Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team defeated Paul Lawrence Dunbar 44-26 Wednesday night. 

    This was Senior Night for wrestlers Chris Brunker, Shaun Lenz, Josh Moss and Brett Williams and it was a real team effort.

    The match started with the heavyweights and Corey Bailey started the evening out right with a very smart match and a 2-0 overtime win.

  • Fillies drop home game to Clark County, 49-42

    The Fillies never lead Monday night as Clark County took advantage of 25 Harrison County turnovers to win 49-42.

    The game was only tied at 2-2 as the Cardinals jumped out to a 15-4 lead near the end of the first period. Harrison County scored the last six points of the quarter to cut the lead to five at 15-10.

    The second period saw Clark County lead by as many as 13 points before the Fillies again cut it to nine at the half, 27-18.  Neither team really played inspired ball as they both shot poorly and made multiple turnovers.
